Our symposium will also include two rounds of workshops with several choices in each round- so you can brush up on your Python, learn about data visualization, or deepen your knowledge of machine learning.

This is a fantastic opportunity to network with students and faculty who are passionate about the impact of data science and the tools they utilize to realize that impact. 

Coffee and Lunch will be served.
